Scarface & Beanie Sigel Are... Mac & Brad

I don't want the throne or the crown, I ain't sell enough/
You can have the jail or the ground, you ain't in hell enough/
- Styles P; "Shot Down"

The fun and games of Watch the Throne lasted for about a week - tops! As they say in Brooklyn the galaxy where Jay-Z resides: "we off that". A Jay-Z/Kanye West pairing is great for the charts, but what about the streets? A recent article posted on - featured on the Rap Round Table, of course - listed "ten hip hop collaboration albums we wish would happen". They missed an important duo however: Scarface and Beanie Sigel. With Face coming home and Sigel going back in, it's a shame that the chemistry and timing for a project of this magnitude will require nothing short of a miracle for it to come to fruition. In the meantime, enjoy this little compilation I put together, aptly named Mac & Brad (the working title was Fuck the Throne, go figure...). It features some Roc-A-Fella era classics, deep cuts and three remixes/blends flipped by yours truly. Hold your head, Beans. Enjoy... and turn it up!!
